Alpha App Server news

We use the Alpha "App Server" software to power our asbestos software system Alpha Tracker and a number of other software products.

The current release of the Alpha App Server is reliable and fast but when our largest software installations require the highest throughput or resilience in the event of a system failure we have to install multiple copies of the App Server which makes maintenance a bit of a pain.

We learnt at the Alpha "DevCon" in Boston last week (see this blog post) that the integration of the App Server into Microsoft's IIS product is nearly complete (see this earlier post) and that there is also a 64-bit version of the App Server in development.  Both of these will increase the robustness and the scalability of the systems we provide.

If you would like any more information on these developments or our technology road-map, do get in touch.
